The Friday Foodie: Chef Peter Sclafani and Copper River Salmon


I have never had better salmon in my life…. ever. Really. Chef Peter Sclafani from Ruffino’s prepared this special, seasonal fish, from Alaska, this morning in our Friday Foodie segment.  These fish get to be 20 pounds or more, and are more tender than you can even imagine.  The preparation is straightforward:  butter and oil together in a non-stick pan;  cracked black pepper and high quality salt; a quick sear on each side (2 minutes per);  serve rare.  Delicious!  And, it will be the Father’s Day special at Ruffino’s.
